    If anyone even buys a pair, not a fan of the leather patches or the buckle

    Thank you Sir, and no problem at all.
    The Leather in the link is almost certainly Espresso Burnished Scotch Grain Calf. On that particular Boot, the Grain is quite heavy. Usually, in 'High Tension' areas such as the Toe Cap and Heel Counter when a shoe is 'Lasted', the Grain can be pulled out a little but that model is quite good.

    Not exactly Tennis Shoes. Tricker's are relaunching the 'Corniche Collection'.
    These will be (amongst others) Trainer Type Shoes and Boots, Deck Shoes and a small hand full of other styles.
    They will though be made in Portugal.
    Official delivery schedule is Late January/Early February to our store.
    We already have several models on order.

    If Tricker's no longer makes the boots for Brunello Cucinelli, anyone know who is making their boots? These Cucinelli's look really nice and, though made in Italy, remind me of Tricker's.

    Pics stolen from an eBay listing (not my listing or anyone I know...can perhaps prove it by declaring I would never lay out a plus $500 starting bid for these, which is what seller is asking.)

    I remember handling those boots at a Cucinelli store last year. They seemed nice, but not $1k+ nice.
    See also this thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/166247/cucinelli-and-trickers

    Speaking of Cucinelli Tricker's clones...
    $995 at Barney's.

    What's the deal with these "Aldo-style" boots I can't find information about that style anywhere else.
    Made for STP?

    anybody with commando soled stows or maltons ever worn them out for some walking say 3 to 4 hours in relatively heavy snow? how do they hold up? got cold feet? the traction provided by the soles would probably be ok, but what about the leather? sno-sealed the seams etc?

    This model looks like is based on the 'Winston' which is only available MTO here in the UK. It would usually be made on the 4497s Last same as the regualar Stow. It is fitted here with the Vibram Gumlite Microfoam Sole.

    I have many customers in Snowy 'Finland', and also wear Tricker's Commando Soled models myself although here in England we don't have too much Snow.
    My Finnish customers advise me that although Commando Soles do provide some Grip, in extreme Cold they can sometimes easily 'Clog' the Tread Pattern fairly quickly with snow and ice, rendering them not good at all.
    General opinion suggests that the 'Ridgeway Sole' is a better option, as the Tread Pattern is more 'open' and so not as easy to clog.
    Surprisingly, my customers also suggest the simple and light tread patterned Vibram Gumlite Sole is quite good in ice and snow, as although this is only a 'Fine' tread pattern, it doesn't clog up.
    Waterproof?
    Veldschoen is always a better option but quite rare. Pleanty of weather proofing products are always a good idea.
    Having said all of this, Wellingtons are probably the best option in lots of snow, they just don't look as good.;-)

    Thx zipp. I'd already seen your linked thread. While it discusses the demise of the Tricker's / Cucinelli partnership nobody ventures to discuss who in Italy might now be making these clones.

    Of course the boots aren't worth 1k. But I can pick up a pair in my size, new, for a quarter of that. After handling the boots I think it's a good deal, but still prefer to know who put them together before committing the cash.

    No clue who makes them but they seem worth it at circa $250.

    Almost certain that the Cucinelli's are produced in Italy, if that points you guys in the right direction.

    This season I got a pair with a Dainite sole, which is a pretty hard and stiff sole that works well enough in fresh to packed but not icy snow. They can be a little chilly after awhile as I don't have room for a really thick sock. I sno-sealed everything before wearing and the leather has held up great.

    re: W2298 vs 4497 lasts

    For me, I found the W2298's 'shape' to become too narrow too quickly and pinch my small toe while the 4497 fit perfect.
